European Championships: Looking Back at Guto Campos

With the 2011 BJJ competition season getting started with the European Championships at the end of this month, here's some footage of last year's black belt absolute winner: middleweight Gustavo "Guto" Campos from Atos Jiu Jitsu.

I see the black belt division as a dead-end street; there's nowhere to run. There are monsters around every corner, whether you are heavy or light. And when you see a way out, often it's just another wall: a newcomer from brown belt just as good as the old folks. And there's no end to tough people coming in.
